By employing the practical techniques outlined in this book, you can increase the likelihood that your students will use what they have learned and maximize the chances that they'll want to learn more. This is essential reading for anyone whose job it is to teach others.

From the Author

How would you like to be able to organize your instruction so that your students become so interested and absorbed in what you are teaching that they try to break down your door to arrive early and hang around until you kick them out of the classroom? Sound too good to be true? It isn't. Furthermore, it isn't even very difficult to accomplish!

Format: Paperback
Reading this work on the creation of effective learning is really a journey back in time to the classroom we all experienced. Dr. Mager has uncovered and openly displayed every bad practice, subversive method, and counterproductive initiative that teachers have inflicted on learners. In doing so, he is reminding us all that teaching has an impact on learners. Dr. Mager states, " Unless students are changed in some way by the instruction, the instruction cannot be regarded as successful." Dr. Mager is pointing out that the initial purpose of instruction is to teach students. He demonstrates that many of the practices found in teaching are used to control students and to manage classrooms rather than to positively change behaviors and interest learners. The influence teaching has on behavior can be positive or negative, and the actions of the instructor and/or the instruction determine which result occurs. His book is another common sense visit to the fundamental issues of instruction and a refreshing reminder that it is not necessary to be fancy in order to be successful.

I love Mager's work...this book is simplistic yet useful but could have been delivered in 1/2 the pages.

This book was so good that I have passed it on to four other educators in my school. Very thoughtful and practical, while being realistic about students.
